Bracknell

There’s triple fun to be had at Bracknell Go Ape with three of our fan favourites – Treetop Challenge, Treetop Adventure and Forest Segway. We’ve got all views of the forest covered from ground level to tree level.

Scream your way around Swinley Forest on the Challenge route – be prepared for 2-3 hours of tree-to-tree obstacles designed to get the adrenaline pumping and the heart thumping. If you and the family fancy something a little more sedate, buckle up and hook onto the Treetop Adventure route. Prefer your fun to be on terra firmer? Hire a Segway and get exploring.

An adventure trio

Being owned by the Crown Estate we like to think Go Ape Bracknell has royal approval! It definitely has a sprinkling of magic dust as parts of the Harry Potter movies were filmed on location here. 

Conveniently tucked amongst Reading, Farnborough, Maidenhead and Slough it’s the perfect antidote to busy living – a calm oasis for families to retreat to.

Swinley Forest stretches over 2,600-acres of gentle hills from Bracknell to Crowthorne. It’s a lovely place to explore on foot and it’s well known for its mountain bike trails.

There’s a 15-mile cycle network offering Green (beginner), Blue (intermediate) and Red (advanced) trails so something for the two-wheel adventurers and family riders too. 

Bring your own bikes or you can hire from the Swinley Bike Hub.

Children can launch a hydrogen rocket, play with boats in the indoor stream or build a house friends in The Look Out Discovery Centre.

There is also a play area which is split into three parts – an inclusive area, infant play area and junior play area.

You can grab a drink and snack from the Coffee Shop and there are also lots of tables and benches surrounding the play area, if you’d rather bring a picnic!

things to do in bracknell

know before you go

  • Wear sensible clothes for adventure.
  • Footwear must be sturdy and suitable for the outdoors. No sandals, slip-off shoes, open toes or heels.
  • Gloves are a good idea. Either bring a pair or you can buy them at the cabin on the day.

make a day of it

  • Check out the Swinley Forest bike trails. Bring or rent bikes.
  • Dogs are welcome if you want to bring your four-legged friend.
  • Grab a bite to eat or a drink at the Coffee Shop.
  • Enjoy a spot of retail therapy at the newly built Lexicon Bracknell - also home to a 12-screen cinema.
  • Explore the Look Out Discovery centre, or Coral Reef Waterworld is just over the road.
  • Great fun had by all, not the hardest tree adventure we've done but still challenging at points. Parking was difficult as extremely busy due to weather so arrive with plenty of time to spare.

  • We had a great experience at Go Ape. The instructor shows you how to attach safety harness etc and then just leaves you to go around the course on your own which is nice. We did 5 courses in just over 2 hours, it's definitely great value for money. We are hoping to go back again in a few months.

  • Kids had an awesome time at Go Ape - fabulous way to spend the afternoon - challenging enough but huge amounts of fun.

  • Fabulous activity - did 9th birthday party, everyone loved it! Great staff. Only 1 small learning for next time - for parties in the winter re open air pavilion/shed for food and cake afterwards - it was a bit cold and windy - will just reduce the time spent there next time, if the location doesn’t upgrade to a fully enclosed party area.
